Part of the beauty of owning your own home is spending time outdoors with family and friends. Today, more and more homeowners are adding value to their homes by creating living rooms outside. An outdoor living area will transform your basic porch, deck, or patio into a comfortable place for year-round entertaining and enjoyment.

These three easy additions will extend your home’s living space into the great outdoors:

Outdoor Kitchen

If hosting a barbecue means you spend the entire time manning the grill alone instead of visiting with your guests, an outdoor kitchen can change all that. Building the outdoor living areagrill into an island or the more popular L- shaped peninsula will give your guests a place to hang out and chat with you while you’re cooking. You’ll also have more room to prepare and serve the food, and you won’t have to miss a moment of the festivities. If you’d like, you can add a sink, mini fridge or some storage space, or go all out with state-of-the art appliances and fixtures like granite countertops.

Fire Pit

On cool Kansas evenings, there’s nothing like the feeling of relaxing by an open fire, roasting marshmallows or just sharing stories. Having a fire pit in your own back yard will make it more comfortable to enjoy your outdoor living space year-round. There are many different design options, like round or square, above ground or in-ground, so it’s easy to create a fire pit that matches your taste and your family’s lifestyle.

Pergola or Awning

The weather in Kansas is known for being unpredictable, but covering your outdoor living area with a pergola or awning will provide shade on sunny days or shelter from the rain. And, awnings can be retraced when you don’t need them. You’ll also increase the value of your home and add to its beauty. Protecting your outdoor living room’s furnishings and appliances from the sun will also help them last longer.

With these easy changes, you can enjoy hosting summer parties or living space into the great outdoors: casual get-togethers in your outdoor living area for years to come.
